SysLink releases can be downloaded here.

SysLink is runtime software that simplifies the development of embedded applications in which either General-Purpose microprocessors (GPP) or DSPs communicate with each other. The SysLink product provides software connectivity between multiple processors. Each processor may run either an HLOS such as Linux, WinCE, etc. or an operating system such as SYS/BIOS™. In addition, a processor may also be designated as the master for another slave processor, and may be responsible for controlling the slave processor's execution (including boot-loading the slave).

The SysLink product provides the following services to frameworks and applications:

  • Processor Manager
  • Inter-Processor Communication
  • Utility modules

Target configurations: SysLink provides reusable & portable modules for:

  • Intra-Processor
  • Inter-Processor
  • Processor may be GPP or DSP, running HLOS or SYS/BIOS
  • Examples:
    • OMAP3530, TI81XX

SysLink is the next generation of DSP Link. The key differences between DSP Link and SysLink are detailed in the SysLink Migration Guide
